Nv4disp.dll Trouble

By Tapedispenser
Jun 11, 2008
  1. Having seriously trouble with my recently bought and built computer. Running on an

    AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual core 6400+ 3.22GHz
    4 Gig Geil DDR2 800mhz
    Asus M2N-SLI mainboard
    EN8800GT 1 Gig nvidia gfx card
    Windows Vista 32 bit
    (having same trouble with xp installation)

    Tried numerous of various solutions. Ran Memtests, stresstest etc. all turned out fine. Tried with 1,2,3,4 memory sticks. Updated bios and all drivers to latests versions, and done about 5 full formats reainstalls of OS... Getting kinda tired of this. Never had trouble with any of my ATI cards and thought id give this shiny gfx card a try, now im regretting it. Seen a gazillion posts about this issue with nv4disp.dll and tried everything people suggest. No luck.
    Anyone got any Constructive ideas on how to fix this, or a link to a driver that works id really appreciate it. Card kicks me out of 3d heavy games(aoc,COD4, Assasins creed etc) but lets me play games like GTA san andreas just fine. Either game just shuts it self down, i get an windows error or i get the nv4disp.dll BSOD. About to take an axe and chop this EN8800Gt card into pieces, mail it back to nvidia and walk to pc store and buy an ATI card, shouldnt be needed tho

    Have you tried adding some fans to your case to improve the cooling? More complex games stress the GPU more, causing more heat to be emitted and since your computer runs games like San Andreas fine, that'd be the first thing I'd look at. That's also the only thing you haven't mentioned.

    not counting the fan on gfx card my pc runs with 4 fans and currenlty dont have room for anymore cooling, dont think its overheat trouble, since its been stable around 55-65 degrees C, wont let me play 3d heavy games more then like 2-5 minutes before jumping out. Dont want to gimp my card by downclocking it, but tried that as well. Getting a red message on cpu saying its running on to high voltage(1550) but tried turning it down in bios, still getting same message leading me to believe the cpu voltage sensor being wrong. Got a deal with the company i bought card from and they wanted to replace it with an ati card of my liking but still i want to figure out this crap problem:) Card shows up as an nvidia 8800 gt tho, and it is an EN8800 (asus?) card. Dunno what that is. Tried with both Nvidia drivers and the once i get from asus site. some people been saying it could be due to not powerfull enough PSU but mine is 650W and i would think it should be enough :/ thanks for your reply

    Wait a min, when you play games you get a error about Nv4disp.dll?

    If so, what does it say in dxdiag under the tab display?

    Do you get this message:

    The file nv4_disp.dll is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). You may be able to get a WHQL logo'd driver from the hardware manufacturer

    It does sound like a bad card. Good luck with the new one.

    Umm, The card being bad doesn't mean that Nvidia is bad, it could happen with ATI as well..

    Anyway, If it IS a bad car, then it doesn't mean it got damaged, just that it was manufactured and was bad to start with.
